In chapter 8. Advanced concepts on page 408:

In section 8.3.1, the $MIRROR variable set in the example is incomplete: it lacks the path to the /debian directory. The assignment should read:

# MIRROR=http://ftp.debian.org/debian

Regardless, you should still use apt-spy to determine a closer mirror!

Feedback

Nico Golde: Krafft manages to illustrate topics such as APT pinning, which have a reputation of being complicated and daunting, in an accessible way. [...] Even long-time users will most certainly find new and interesting stuff between the covers. [...] The book has the potential to become the future Debian Bible.
